Cincinnati Children’s to help UK revive heart surgery program

Cincinnati Children’s finalized plans to partner with the University of Kentucky to rebuild its pediatric heart program at Kentucky Children’s Hospital. The one-program, two-site approach will allow more Kentucky children to receive cardiac care closer to home..

“Part of our mission here is to look not just at improving child health in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky but also improving child health across the region,” said Mark McDonald, assistant vice president, Heart Institute. “We certainly do have the capacity, the talent and the innovations to work with a number of partners. In this case, it looks like we match up very well with the University of Kentucky.”
